Roundtable attendees considered the advantages and drawbacks of the two pathways by which patients may request access to investigational therapies.

Among other things, participants explored the impact of each pathway on long-term drug development, the resources necessary for handling requests in a timely and consistent manner, and the optimal contents of organizational policies on Right to Try and Expanded Access.
